xcitement and demand for the Michelin X Tweel SSL continues to rise. The airless tire designed to minimize downtime has been picked up by Case Construction Equipment as a new OE option on all 2018 skid steers.
The 10N16.5 and 12N16.5 X Tweel SSL are designed for rugged off-road conditions in the industrial, construction, landscaping and agriculture industries. They can be easily mounted, and once in place, not having to worry about maintaining air pressure means more time for getting the job done. This means maximum profitability for the user.
The Michelin X Tweel line also boasts high damage resistance, above the bar operator comfort and reduced operator fatigue. This leads to improved productivity and longer wear than pneumatic tires long considered the standard in these industries.
